Treatment options for periodontal disease varies depending on the extent and severity of tissue destruction and the progression of the gum disease. Your local Woodside periodontic office, Dr. Michael Weiss & Associates, offers both surgical and non-surgical periodontal treatment. The main objective is to eliminate all traces of the disease causing bacteria and regenerate the supporting structures of the affected teeth.
After a diagnosis of periodontal disease or gum disease is made during your annual dental exam with Dr. Weiss in Woodside, you’ll be schedule for non-surgical periodontics, scaling, and root planing, to reduce the signs of infection. You’ll experience a reduction in swelling and bleeding, but sometimes scaling and root planing alone are not enough to fully eradicate the bacteria. In this case, Dr. Weiss will recommend surgical periodontal treatment.

With a simple dental exam and x-rays, we can diagnose your oral pain and begin periodontal treatment, if necessary, immediately.
